That Time We Explored Montreal, Canada PT. 1

Y'all, it's so good to be back at Hot Tea and the Empty Seat. I've only been gone for four days but it feels like a lifetime! My husband and I just arrived back at home from a trip to Montreal. We had such a grand time and made so many memories in the short four days that we stayed there. I can't wait to show you all the fun things we did in Canada's second largest city. We fell in love with the NYC-like atmosphere {although it was mounds cleaner}, the gorgeous architect, and the history of Montreal. Plus, we hit up Starbucks everyday. That's always a good trip. I'm currently already missing all of these places..

{how cool is this building?!}

 {mocha, amazing!}
 

 {we are all about those cupcakes!}
 
 {not gonna lie, this was our first stop!}
 

{amazing buildings!}
 
{PSL Canadian style, anyone?!}
 
{this was one of my favorite spots in downtown.. the Notre-Dame Basilica}
 
In part 2 of our adventure to montreal, you will be seeing more pictures of that amazing place and maybe even a story or two ;) how can you not have stories after renting scooters in a foreign town...

  3. I lived in Toronto for four months back in 2012, but my work schedule didn't allow me enough free time to take the train to Montreal. BUT one of my best friends lives there, and she's getting married next May!!!! I've already put the date on the calendar, and my husband & I have already started researching the best time to buy our plane tickets. Love your pictures! Can't wait to see more!
